Your Son might be gay if. . .

*He puts his bath towel on his head pretending it is long hair and tells you he is Tabitha.

*He loves to do your hair.

*One of his favorite things to do is going shopping at the Boulevard Mall with his aunts.

*He prefers to play with the girls instead of the boys

*The majority of his friends are girls

*He spends the night at his Aunt Candice's house and he wants to give each other pedicures and paint each others toenails (Aunt Candice's contribution)

*The Bodyguard was his favorite movie ever. (His aunt Kendra reminded me of this one)

*He loves the young Obi-Wan Kenobi and not for his acting abilities. (His aunt Candice provided this one)

* He adores Gwen Stefani, it started at an early age and he has a shrine of her in his bedroom.

*He tells all your friends and family that when he grows up he is going to marry your friend Steve Mitchell pictured above. (His aunt Trina reminded me of this one)

So for those of you who think being gay is a choice, I am here to tell you that it is NOT! Just like a child is born with blue eyes, or green eyes, or brown hair, blonde hair etc, a child is born with their sexual orientation. As the proud mother of a gay child I can tell you this for a fact! Everyone who knew Colin growing up could tell. So when he finally came out last year it was not a shock to any of us who truly know and love him.

Where did you find those pictures? I remember it all except for the Tabitha part. I forgot about that. I agree with you. When you told me he was gay I was like, ya I knew that already - I loved him then, and I still do!!

Remember when I told him his name was Colin Devern Puckettbutt? Then when people would ask him his name he would say that? And instead of "lips" he would say "nips". He would say "I'm gonna give you a kiss on the nips".

So Colin to you I sing " baby baby I love you stoppy notion. I love you stoppy notion"

I can't even remembe the real words to that song!
